Hideo Kojima has mocked Konami for introducing zombies into the Metal Gear franchise he created, seemingly forgetting the zombies he himself penned in earlier titles.

Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima has responded to former paymaster Konami's announcement of a zombie-themed entry in the franchise with surprise, claiming that the game's premise was not his idea.

Following the release of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain and Konami's decision to shift its primary focus away from video games and onto pachinko machines for the Japanese market, Hideo Kojima left the company - despite its claims otherwise - to form Kojima Productions.

In doing so, however, he left the rights to Metal Gear, the franchise he launched with Konami back in 1987 with the release of a top-down stealth-action game for the MSX2, with his former employer.

Now, Konami has confirmed that it plans to continue the Metal Gear franchise even without Kojima, releasing details of Metal Gear Survive.

A four-player cooperative game, an unusual mix for a Metal Gear title, the biggest surprise of all was the inclusion of everyone's favourite overdone gaming and film trope: zombies.

Last month, Hideo Kojima revealed that a director’s cut of Death Stranding for the PS5 was on the way — and now we actually have some details on what it will include. Like the Ghost of Tsushima director’s cut, the new version of Death Stranding appears to be more of an enhanced remake than a traditional director’s cut.

Among the added features are new story missions, more battles with “advanced combat mechanics,” a Metal Gear Solid-style firing range, a cargo catapult for delivering... less fragile goods, a robot buddy who seemingly can carry you around, and, for some reason, a race track. You can get a good sense of all the changes in the trailer above.

This will mark the third platform Death Stranding is available on. The game debuted...

After auteur video game developer Hideo Kojima left Konami in 2015, many wondered what his next move would be.

Go small and develop an indie game?

In the end, it seems Kojima may be making his biggest game yet.

The odd title was revealed in an equally bizarre trailer, and since that announcement, Kojima and his team have teased various details about the game, but it remains largely an enigma.

He confirmed rumors that it would be an open-world game, saying “I can’t really speak on that right now but in a word, it’s an action game — an open world game, with a lot of freedom.”

Hideo Kojima has teased that his upcoming debut game, Death Stranding, could be released before 2019 and feature a female protagonist

Famed Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima has teased that his mysterious upcoming debut game, Death Stranding, could be released in 2018.

Speaking at the Tokyo Game Show panel on 18 September, Kojima said the game would be released before the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, IGN reports.

He elaborated saying: "To go a little further, there is a movie called Akira, and it will be out before the year in which Akira is set."

Directed by Katsuhiro Otomo, the 1988 anime film Akira is set in 2019 against the backdrop of the forthcoming 2020 Tokyo Olympics, which could potentially give Death Stranding a 2018 release window.

Last week, Kojima revealed that the game would be an open world action game with online elements.

The "Death Stranding" producer Hideo Kojima says his new game is about building connections between people in an era defined by the isolationist politics of the Trump administration and Brexit.

In an interview with BBC's Newsbeat, Kojima said he wanted "Death Stranding" to remind people of the value of caring for one another.

"Death Stranding," which is scheduled for release on the PlayStation 4 on Friday, is the first release from Kojima's independent studio.

Hideo Kojima has carefully cultivated an air of mystery around Death Stranding, his first game since leaving Konami in 2015.

Two trailers have so far been released, revealing that the game will star Norman Reedus, Mads Mikkelsen and Guillermo del Toro, and offering an idea of how the final product may look in Guerrilla Games' Decima Engine.

During a presentation held at industry conference Siggraph 2017, Guerrilla Games' principal tech programmer Giliam de Carpentier and Kojima Productions' Kohei Ishiyama discussed the engine powering Death Stranding.

The presentation included two short clips showing off a system developed by Kojima Productions for layering fog over an in-game environment and representing dense atmospheric conditions.

The second of these videos uses a piece of scenery from Death Stranding's second trailer.

Unless that is, there's some hidden meaning or message conjured by genius artistic visionary Hideo Kojima that our pathetic minds can't even comprehend.

The Game Awards returned for another annual iteration on Thursday, and like in years past, the online-streamed ceremony was probably more interesting because of game trailer debuts than any of its awards—with the exception of the very first award given.

Last year's broadcast was notable thanks to a weird no-show: Metal Gear Solid series creator Hideo Kojima, who wasn't allowed to attend thanks to contract issues with his former employers at Konami.

"What happened to Hideo Kojima last year was a tragedy," a visibly shaken host Geoff Keighley told the crowd—referring specifically to Konami's choice to "lock him in a room" thanks to those squabbles—before handing him the show's Industry Icon award.

"Last year, I thought I lost everything," Kojima told the crowd in accepting the award.

The five-minute clip begins with an apparent 3D-rendered version of filmmaker Guillermo Del Toro walking into a creepy cavern, over which a tentacle-covered tank rolls while black ooze seeps below.
